Monitor Out of Range Whats is this?

In reply to: Monitor Out of Range Whats is this?

It means your system display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode and set the display settings lower. Right mouse button click on an empty space on your desktop and go to properties. Then settings->advanced and you should be able to adjust the vertical frequency down to 60hz or 72hz. If not, then go to the monitor tab and load a generic monitor driver.
One time, I bought a repackaged display card that had been set too high and I had to reload the card driver in safe mode to get it to work correctly.

Thanks for your reply.
I wish i could boot to safe mode, but the bad thing is that when i start the PC i cant get any display on my screen, the only thing i get is the warning message "monitor out of range"
i tried using another Monitor with the same PC it worked just fine. But when i try a different PC with the same monitor i still get the same message. Any help is welcomed.

follow directions with the known good monitor

In reply to: Monitor Out Of Range What is this?

Use the other monitor and just let the PC boot up. Follow the directions above to reduce the screen size to something in the mid-low range. right-click, select properties, select settings tab, make the adjustment. Leave the CPU running and connect the other monitor. If you can see the picture, it may look funny or distorted, then you just need to adjust it to your preference

Umm . . .

In reply to: Monitor Out of Range Whats is this?

Is it just me, or does anyone else see a problem with the monitor out-of-range even on POST? As was said before, the monitor cannot read the signal being sent to it (often a high resolution on a lower res monitor) and needs to be reset. In all my experience, though, I have never had a monitor not display the POST.

To Lino:
Does any other monitor work with the pc other than the original, and did the pc come with the monitor?

Thanks everyone for your reply!
like i said on my last post, i can use the PC with any other monitor and things go well, but when i try the problematic Monitor with other PCs it does not work.
The other things is i cant boot windows to safe mode because there is no display at all on my screen, the only thing i get when i power the PC is "ATTENTION MONITOR OUT OF RANGE"
So that lives me without any option.
please help

You need to change the picture resolution in safe mode. To do so restart computer and press F8 as it reboots or just press the resart on the front of computer and when it reboots a message comes up windows did not close properly giving you the option of safe mode, then just go into display and change the res

Just had the same problem instead of choosing safe mode use the ENABLE VGA mode on the options when hitting F8 from here you can install the drivers and or make the relevant adjustments to your PC.
